Observer
NameJen K
Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt was amazing... There was a rainbow trailing a huge, bright white falling star. I had no idea what it was until I did a google search for "Rochester giant falling star May 2020" and your website was the first result. It made me stand up from where I was sitting, and it was still going even after I stood up. Then it disappeared behind the tree line. I have never even heard of a fireball before tonight.
